I'm just starting out with my shows, and I'm really fighting discouragement right now. My first show was my own, and I only had three people show up. My second show was a bridal shower, and it was like pulling teeth to get the bride or her maid of honor to invite anyone to it. Only four people showed for that one, two of whom lived at that house. My third show was yesterday, and again only three came. I feel terrible that the host is not even getting any benefits because she didn't have enough sales. I'm finagling some of my own sales to add on to her show so she can at least get something. I'm doing everything I know to do--3 calls per host, stressing the importance of inviting 40 people, making wishlists and setting goals, and offering to call people for them. I feel like I've worked very hard. This is pathetic, and I really wanted to get SS1, at the least. Am I just unlucky, or what should I be doing? I have a couple shows booked for the next week, and my hosts just don't see the importance of inviting lots of people. I hate when they wait until the week before the show to send out invitations. Arghhhh... I guess I just need a little advice on how to get the hosts excited about hosting parties. I'm hoping this will get better once I start getting bookings off my shows. Right now, I think these people think they're just doing me a favor, so they aren't excited about getting lots of free things. I'm still very excited about the prospects of my business. It's just gotten off to a bad start. I'm determined to make this work. I really fell in love with this company and am enjoying sharing it with everyone I know.
